NEW CD – Isis Ensemble – with conductor Jacques Cohen: 

Isis Ensemble – Transcription for Strings

«This is a lovely disc…the performances from the Isis Ensemble are full of elan, and Jacques Cohen’s arrangements combine some nicely imaginative timbres and textures.»

«…the panoply of the full orchestra is reproduced by the clever and exciting re-drawing of the score for strings. Rachmaninov’s Prelude, Op. 3, No.2 is also given a convincing and beautiful performance, as is the Brahms Sonata, Op. 120, No. 1, with Anna Hashimoto as the most impressive clarinet soloist. Listeners who relish the sound of a string orchestra – but a string band that achieves a wide sense of sonority – will cherish this well-engineered and satisfying disc.»

«…the Isis Ensemble brings out a variety of sound and character, which a full orchestra can sometimes eclipse.»
